Attorney James Robert Deal has reserved time in libraries throughout Snohomish County as part of his final push towards the August 5 primary election. Deal is running for the office of County Executive against John Lovick and Carolyn Eslick.

Says Deal: “An election should be about something. It should be a discussion about what the county needs and what can be done to improve it.”

A link on Deal’s website has updates on times and library locations. See:

According to Deal, “I have stated my position on a dozen different ways to make life better in Snohomish County, but my opponents are mostly silent on them. I am running an issues campaign. They are running image campaigns.”

Deal says, “For example, when asked about raising the minimum wage, opponents Carolyn Eslick said she opposed it and John Lovick said he would have to think about it. We should not have to think long about whether the working poor should be paid less now than they were paid 46 years ago.”

Deal says: “Most politicians bypass controversial issues. Either they do not understand them or their campaign manager tells them not to take the risk that people might disagree. I am not afraid to take positions on controversial issues. I have posed a list of questions to John and Carolyn on my web site. They should answer them. See”.

When asked about experience, Deal says, “My opponents offer years of elective experience. I offer many and varied experiences of all different kinds. I know more about science, the environment, and transit. Elective experience is not the only or best kind of experience. My 36 years of representing thousands of satisfied clients and staying in good standing with the Bar Association is proof that I am a responsible person. Being a career politician mostly proves that one is good at making compromises in order to get elected”.

Deal says, “I am the progressive in this campaign, but that does not mean I am a big spender. We need to get every last cent out of every last dollar of taxes citizens pay.

Asked about the proposed new $160 million court house, Deal says, “It would be a complete waste of money to remodel the existing court house. It is contaminated with asbestos. There are serious security problems. If the decision is not a done deal by the time I take office, I will completely restudy the design and cost. I have ideas about how to do it better for less money.

Deal says: “The theme of my campaign is that Snohomish County should be a model county for the rest of Washington.”

Deal intends to lead an effort to brand Snohomish County as The Organic County. Deal says, “It is not as convenient to grow crops organically, but the soil is enriched, and humans and fish are not poisoned. We could export our crops world wide, and our farmers would get rich.”

Deal is critical of how Community Transit operates. “For the same sales tax revenues it could deliver much better service, and I know how it can be done.” Deal blogs on transit issues at

Deal first got into politics because of the dental chemicals which Everett Utilities adds to drinking water. Deal says, “This is actual toxic waste until it is added to our water. It contains lead and leaches lead from plumbing. It is not even good for teeth. On this issue the Board of Health is trapped in a maze. I will help them find their way out.”
